June 13, 2015 -Thanks to a grant from Wal-Mart through Frelinghuysen Township’s participation in the Sustainable New Jersey program, we were able to establish a “Safe Route” throughout our town so our motorists can safely “Share the Road” with our pedestrians and cyclists.

The entire route is over nine miles long. With the money we received through the Wal-Mart grant, we were able to install safety road signs along the route, place a bike rack behind Township Hall and make shoulder repairs to some of the Township’s roads.

As part of the Mayor’s Wellness Campaign we are trying to get our community moving. Our purpose in implementing this “Safe Route” is to increase the awareness of drivers, pedestrians and cyclists. Through this, we were also able to improve the road shoulder conditions for cyclists and walkers in order to minimize the need to travel in the automobile lanes.

The map shows the “Safe Route” loops established for cyclists and walkers.
